9 February 2021 @ 4:00 pm6:00 pm

The fifth meeting of the project’s research seminar this term (T2, 2020–21) will take place from 16.00 to 18.00, on Tuesday 9 February, 2021, online via Zoom (the possibility of convening physically will be reviewed). The link to the Zoom meeting location is available to the registered participants.

The topic for this meeting is: Responsibility and regret

  • Questions: What is agent-regret? Is it ever justified, or rational, to feel it in response to something that happened beyond one’s control? What does it reveal about the relationship between responsibility, the capacity to guide conduct by reasons, and acts that are expressive of who we are as responsible agents?
  • Readings:
    • Raz, Joseph. 2011. “Being in the World.” Chap. 12 in From Normativity to Responsibility, 227–54. Oxford, UK: Oxford UP.
    • Williams, Bernard. 1981. “Moral Luck.” Chap. 2 in Moral Luck: Philosophical Papers 1973–1980, Cambridge, UK: Cambridge UP.
